  If you can't participate, bring out your lawn chairs or blankets and be a spectator. This is a parade of celebration, so there will be music, floats and lots of festivities.

Historic Bike Tour
Division Avenue, Levittown NY

  Queue up at New York Chiropractic College on Division Avenue for a bicycle tour of Levittown and its historic sites. (Yes, Levittown is full of history and our ride includes 7 or 8 sites on each side of town!) Queue is at 12:30 PM and the ride will begin at 1 PM. Please be on time.
  You may choose to tour the south side of Levittown or the north side of Levittown or both. Each route is under 3 miles and we move at an easy pace, so children can also ride. The 8th Precinct has been notified and will control traffic. Volunteer docents will be at each spot explaining the historic significance of the spot. For those taking the south side ride, the last stop will be the Levittown History Museum, which will be open for visitors that day.
  Depending on the number of riders that show up, we may have several groups going out. If you're interested in riding, please respond by return e-mail. Spread the word -- invite friends, relatives and neighbors to join you on the ride.
   If you're interested in being a docent, a bicycle is not required and your very short "script" will be provided. Please contact Frank McKenna, who is chairing this event, if you'd like to be a docent. Frank can be reached at 731-2211 or by e-mail at fjmckiii@aol.com.
